Jay Electronica’s Album Is In “Last Stages” Says Producer The Bullitts


We know, we know. You’ve heard it all before, right? But, according to producer, The Bullitts, Jay Electronica’s long awaited album Act II: Patents of Nobility (The Turn) is finally in the last process of recording and should be in your hands sooner than later.

Bullitts, who has worked closely on the elusive album, recently talked with NME and revealed that Jay Elect is currently putting the final touches on the LP. “Honestly, it’s in the last stages of recording. It’s just tinkering,” he said. “Just putting the final… you know when a builder builds a house? And when he’s finished the walls he gives them one little brush over, like a once over? And then the album will be done.”

Jay Electronica first came into the hip-hop conscious with the 2007 release of his project, Act I: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge), which was made available via MySpace. He gained more traction in 2009 with the release of two Just Blaze produced singles, “Exhibit A” and “Exhibit C.” After a short courting from different labels, he signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation imprint in 2010 but has been scarcely heard from, music wise, since then. But, according to Bullitts, the album is almost here and worth the wait. “His album is amazing, it’s remarkable,” he said. “It goes hand in hand with Yeezus and Magna Carta. They go hand in hand… Also, also… It’s weird how Jay Z is intricately involved with all of us, but all the albums sound so different.”

  • Santana

    It goes hand in hand with Yeezus & Magna Carta, huh? No Thanks, both of those albums are mega let downs

    • Natra

      Same thought I had. My anticipation level just wen’t down a couple of notches.

    • kinvay

      i think he meant stylistically in terms of not releasing a single and dropping out of nowhere. as opposed to musically.

    I’ll believe it when I see it as well, been waiting since 2009-2010 before he signed with Roc Nation for a album. Dude is a super lyrical rapper so I knew he wasnt just gone throw some sh*t together and I atleast respect that.
    Exhibit A is still one of the dopest lyrical songs I’ve heard in the last 5 years. I’d put that joint up against dudes whole albums from this generation of rappers and that song would be more thought provoking then 15 of their songs…real talk
    just to name a few …Plies, Waka Flocka, Trinidad James, Riff Raff etc. – my head hurts just thinking of those lames LOL

      Stop talking. I love Jay Electronica but those you mentioned are a completely different style. Do I listen to Lil B, Riff Raff, Waka Flocka, or 2 Chainz for deep lyrical meaning? No. In the same regard, do I listen to Jay Elec for something to wild out and turn up to? No. Stop being a hip-hop elitist and if you don’t like the music don’t bash it. It doesn’t make the music you like look any better.
